Event Description

In February of 2019, Coin & Ghost hits the stage with the third and final production of our inaugural season: the World Premiere of Lisa Marie Rollins' LOVE IS ANOTHER COUNTRY. Equal parts ritual, rage, and collective ask to the audience, LIAC follows the Chapman family as they navigate living as black women in a country that claims to love them.


The project emerged as a radical re-imagining of Sophocles' Antigone, in response to two cultural stimuli: the systemic deaths of black people as a result of police terror, and the generational impact of incarceration on black women. In LOVE IS ANOTHER COUNTRY, a cast of four explores these themes unflinchingly and without apology.


For this production, Coin & Ghost is partnering with Johnny Clark and VS. Theatre. As with all C&G productions, opening weekend will be entirely Pay-What-You-Can. As part of this ritual, and to amplify human-to-human connection, Coin & Ghost is employing personalized Yondr bags to create a phone-free experience for the audience.


The play runs approximately 85 minutes with no intermission. There is no late seating.
